Norse Mythology


A lover of stories and mythologies, this author went back to early sources and put together his own wonderful tales. These gods just pop off the page, so to speak, in all their complicated glory. From early days to Ragnarok (and beyond), these short stories stand alone but also work well together. They are also familiar, yet new.

Neil Gaiman said his first exposure to the Norse was Marvel Comics. Mine was Deities and Demigods, a supplement for AD&D. I would recommend Neil's book much more strongly, unless you need to know the hit point totals.

Bonus - the audio book is read by the author, who is also a master storyteller. If you have even an ounce of interest in the topic, read this book.
